As the Sun moves away from Black Moon Lilith and Chiron, and the square to the Moon Nodes loosens, we are seeing a series of powerful positive aspects that provide support for the shifts that are taking place as a result of the disruption of COVID-19.
Many people are concerned about the economic fallout of this process but a trine from Venus in Taurus to the Jupiter / Pluto conjunction in Capricorn suggests a time of opportunities, synchronicity and abundance. This transit has been impacting us already for a few days and personally my family has already reaped the benefits with my husband picking up part time work and lots of collaborative relationships developing in our local area.
Venus is currently at 23 degrees of Taurus and Jupiter and Pluto are at 23 and 24 degrees of Capricorn so those who have planets or points between 20 and 27 degrees of the Earth or Water signs will benefit from most from this transit.
While Jupiter brings abundance and good fortune, Venus trine Pluto is promoting transformation within the social sphere and enabling easy resolution of conflict and power struggles. Pluto rules death and endings and this transit supports our ability to let go of things that are no longer serving us, (and indeed things that were serving us pretty well!), in order to allow new ways of living and being to emerge.
This is a time of great upheaval and change. It’s scary in many ways. But the astrology is very supportive of our transition. Challenges will come, especially when Saturn squares Uranus next year, but if we are able to work with the positive energies that are at play now, and especially working to build strong relationships and community, we will be well placed to deal with whatever the universe throws at us!
With Venus still in Taurus we can also expect to find a great deal of nourishment in our connection with nature. If you can, take some time out from indoor isolation and the intensity of family togetherness and go outside, even if you only have a small courtyard or balcony. If you’re stuck in a small apartment consider acquiring some big palms or indoor plants to bring nature inside to you.
There’s a lot of change in the air and change can be hard. To support everyone in the Insight Astrology community I’m currently developing a free course with Cristina from Zodiac Poetry to help you remain positive and in touch with your power. We’re hoping to launch it over the next few days so stay tuned. Together we will get through this!
